#700 + 701 – love is a pretty sweet fruit

That's the end of this arc, as well as comic #700! We did it. Together. My latest book, Octopus Pie: Dead Forever has been nominated for an Ignatz Award! I'm honored to be listed with a lot of wonderful artists. Check out the full list here. We're so close with the Patreon campaign - just $200 away!

  1. "We don't have cable so I haven't been able to catch my Soaps. This is the next best thing."

  2. Don't end the arc here! There's more words to be exchanged.

    1. Spoiler: Larry figures everything out for him. We'll find out in the next arc how Will is actually going to act on the epic sage advice he'll have received off-screen.

  3. Hahahaha MAN I love Larry

    Also, congrats on the nomination! 🙂 <3

  4. Larrryyyyyy. <3

  5. Larry's already caught them all, so now he's a friendship master.

  6. Oh my god. Olly has slowly gone crazy over the coarse of the comic. I think he's my favorite charactor now.

    1. Slowly gone crazIER, and I am delighted.

  7. I love Larry.

  8. DJ Swiva-Swiva is IN DA HOUSE!

  10. I can't pick a favorite – Olly's shelved head or Larry's quick-action shift into listening mode. They're killing me!

  11. Goddamn it this arc had me by the balls. I feel the symptoms of withdrawal setting in. It hurts.

  12. We need coffee and some beanbags, stat.

  13. Hell yeah.

  14. Dude, Larry is a fucking BRO.

    I need him in my life.

  15. I didn’t like Larry at all, until today.



  17. Nice, Larry. The guy wants to sit and talk about serious shit, and you take away the only chair in the room. </3

  18. OMG YES!


  19. WONDERBRO POWERS, ACTIVATE! Form of: therapist! Shape of: older brother back from college!

  20. I just noticed that Olly is undoing his belt as he walks to the bathroom, whilst remarking wistfully on love. Oh, Olly.

    Also I LOVE how Will's word bubbles are set up in panel 9. I read it with a brief pause between each few words, like he's hesitant about asking Larry. It makes Larry's immediacy of action even more endearing.

  21. Larry's room is so unexpectedly tidy.

  22. that's a very good supportive attitude.

  23. He put the bro cap on. Will better be ready for some serious bro truthness.

  24. I thought this arc was wonderfully done. I really enjoy your pacing and page structure in general, and thought your skills were displayed well here. Looking forward to seeing what happens to our beloved heroes. : )

  25. I can’t wait to see what comes next! I never thought an online comic would be so enriching to my life, but over the last few years you have proven me wrong. And yes, WIN ALL THE AWARDS

  26. Larry is the male equivalent of Wisdom Bitch. Will is gonna get ALL his shit put together.

  27. earnest LOL

  28. Larry then writes these sessions up (changing the names, of course) and sells them to amateur psychologist websites.

    He's rolling in dough.

  29. New favourite. So many minute details captured in both illustration and text; Olly unbuckling his belt, Eve's tired eyes, the urgent chair swivel in response to Will's halting request for a chat.

    Your have given flesh and bones to these characters Meredith.

  30. I'd like to imagine that cap is always off panel, ready to be grabbed at a moment's notice.

  31. As do I, Larry, as do I.

  32. Olly :<

  33. Again with the fruit and the peeing! Powerful symbolism. 0_0

    (PS Congratulations! Brownout Biscuit is one of my favorite storylines ^_^)

  34. Where did Larry Get the hat?? o.o

  35. larry is the most on-the-case dude

  36. Noooo whyyyy must the arc end here nooooooo >_<

  37. I don't think I could put on a hat AND swivel a chair at the same time. You go, Larry!

  38. I feel the symptoms of withdrawal setting in. It hurts…!!!
